Into the Wilderness:
27 February -
9 April 2016
Wastelands and ruins, nature untamed: lands like these have long provided inspiration for artists.

The artists exhibited here prove there’s as much to inspire today as there ever was. They represent the tension between nature and humankind, spaces where the built environment takes over and others where nature is resolutely in charge.

Exhibiting Artists: Tracey Eastham, Paul Gallagher, Pam Holstein, Justice Hyde, Josie Jenkins, Susan McCall, Anthony Ratcliffe and Jean Davey Winter.

Opening Event: Saturday 27 February. Come along and join in the free family activities based on the wilderness and Wild Things!
